Living in Baton Rouge, we have a wealth of parks to enjoy. Take a look at all of the parks and conservation areas we have in East Baton Rouge Parish, and you will have an appreciation for all that BREC does.
There are several hiking trails just minutes from anywhere in the city, but because BREC does not list their hiking trails separately on their website, I can only refer to the trails I know. I count six hiking trails within the Baton Rouge metropolitan area.
Hooper Road Park
Blackwater Conservation Area
Comite River Park
Frenchtown Conservation Area
Kendalwood Road Conservation Area
As I write this post I am contacting BREC to see what other parks have hiking trails.
Recently the Louisiana Hiking Club (of which I am a member) helped to build the Kendalwood Road Conservation Area trail. It's a 1.3 mile loop trail that is great for anyone living in South Baton Rouge who is looking to enjoy a nature walk. This area is close to Bayou Manchac so be prepared for some wet conditions.
I hope to have more information about all of the trails that BREC has, and I am working on a new video project that will incorporate all of these trails.
